Nebraska region names new regional minister

From the Nebraska Regional Church

The Regional Board voted unanimously to call Chris Morton to serve as the next Regional Minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Nebraska. Chris has served as a pastor of congregations in Indiana, Minnesota and Washington, and in senior leadership and/or executive director of ecumenical and interfaith organizations in Minnesota and Washington. Additionally, Chris has been executive director to a few secular nonprofit organizations, and for nearly 10 years provided organizational development consulting to a variety of not-for-profits. He will move to Lincoln and will begin his ministry in Nebraska in early April.

Much appreciation is expressed to the search committee, co-chaired by Eileen Kunz and Gayle Gengenbach. “Chris brings to us the needed balance of pastoral care, administrative ability, fund-raising experience and a vision for future ministry,” Eileen said. Other members of the committee were Jay Mitchell, Daryl Lauber, Ann Pope, and Phyllis Dunlop.
